Interesting book but have not used it much as it is quite difficult to find items within it. It is also challenging to work out how much you "noramally" use as this is not always stated.

this book is not set out particularly well, it has far too many band names and the weights aren't standardised. There's no reason to the order, not alphabetical. One can eventually navigate around it but it takes too long to find the category and one wants to go into the kitchen and eat bread and jam to alleviate the boredom!!!

I now have 3 of these - 1 each for the kitchen, car and briefcase. A very good 'handy' guide (small notebook size). It's v good for relative comparison - eg orange juice vs croissant, or cheerios vs bran flakes

Bought this for a friend with diabetes as I had one similar that is now out of print. There is nothing wrong with this book - except that it is not really for UK use. Unfortunately that was not clear to me when it was purchased. Needless to say, I haven't given it to my friend as it would be even more confusing! I should have paid more attention to the American spelling of Glycaemic in the title. For those who don't realise, the US is one of the few places in the world that still used mg instead of mmol/litre for measuring blood sugar despite the changes having been implemented in 1971 ... ... ...

This is a simple book that is easy to read and tells you all you need to know about GL once you understand what GL and GI are.
